attack. there you see jay carney in the white house briefing room, the picture of was that, obvious li of something more alarming were happening, that room would be either evacuated or in a high state of energy. the story is an a.p. twitter feed, in this era of social immediate what was apparently victimized in this climate of high nerves and high alert in the wake of boston. and the equity market reflected it immediately. it went down, and now has come back as a.p. itself has confirmed they were the victim of a hack attack. sioux, i assume that i got it pretty much right there. >> you did. absolutely, ty. >> and traders down there are confirming that's why the stock market sold off? >> that is indeed what happened. jay carney is the picture of calm, and he just said the president is final, the president is absolutely fine. so, you know, obviously that's why the stock market sold off so dramatically, so quickly, but it bounced back just as quickly when a.p. put out the fact that they had been hacked. once again this market is absolutely on tinder -- tenderhooks, and it we went to negat
." >> it's a tongue twister. welcome to the "halftime report." we're waiting for jay carney to t take to the podium to discuss the two letters that have tested positive for ricin, one to the president and one to the senator. we'll bring it to you live. perhaps one of the reasons we sea market weakness. four hours to go until the close. here's where we stand now. we are off the lows. dow jones industrials average lower by 148 points. it had been down nearly 200 points. 14,608. a decline of 1%. the s&p and nasdaq are lowing by 1.5 and nearly 2%. they have apple in them. that's probably why they are outperforming on the downside even more than the dow. the nasdaq now below its 50-day moving average. we're also going to be talking a lot about gold and copper to see what they are telling us when it comes to the world economy and what clues they can provide to the sell-off we're seeing today. the renewed sell-off after yesterday's rebound. here's what we're following -- golden student. it's the widowmaker of the year, but the sell-off in gold, and miners, that we'll be talking about. is it
at the white house when jay carney brought in, among others, homeland security secretary janet napolitano. she said you know what? if this sequester goes through it will be bad news. delays at the border. furlough some of our border security guards. so if you really care about border security, you should not go through with the sequester. i was there on point here when secretary of transportation ray lahood good man i think has done a great job. he came in and he said hey, folks, i gotta tell you the faa is one of the biggest parts of the department of transportation. and they got nothing but people, you know. they don't have like battleships that can keep in port or whatever and we're going to have to cut x billion dollars whatever it is. the only way we can meet that goal is we're going to have to furlough. and most of our people -- so we have nothing but employees basically. most of our people or a good schaffer our people are air-traffic controllers so there is no way -- this is what lahood told us, told the world. there is no way that we can avoid this. therefore, no way to avoid what tha
house reacted just moments ago when it was asked, jay carney was asked about this controversial easter sunday sermon. that was delivered with president obama ap his family sitting right this in the pews. the white house reaction is next. plus, some video went viral over the weekend after it appeared to show a couple kidnapped in broad daylight right from a city street. and today what turned out to be a hoax. in kelly's court, a controversial and disturbing question how to put justice two fifth grade boys, conspiring to kill one girl and possibly up to half a dozen other classmates. >> so i asked him. you really were going to do this, are you sure? were you really going to kill her? and he said that, yes, he was. what's this? uhh, it's my geico insurance id card, sir. it's digital, uh, pretty cool right? maybe. you know why i pulled you over today? because i'm a pig driving a convertible? tail light's out.. fix it. digital insurance id cards. just a click away with the geico mobile app. some brokerage firms are. but way too many aren't. why? because selling their funds makes them more m
? sure. it is so you can all beat up on it. >> i want you to listen to what jay carney had to say about what the white house is saying about this very inflammatory sermon. >> was he surprised, were you surprised the reverend decided to get so political attack members of the religious right saying they want, pope, blacks to be in the back of the bus. it seemed odd for easter. were you surprised by that? >> i wasn't there, and i have not spoken with the president. this is a sermon. it is at a church here that has been visited by presidents of both parties for many, many years. i just don't have anything hour on it for you. >> it is probably a tough predicament for him, kimberly. this is a liberal church c openly gay sell -- celibat priests. this same reverend urged president bush in a political way to put an end to xenaphobia. >> i don't think this was appropriate. bob, you were the first one to say it was inappropriate for dr. ben carson to talk about the national prayer record. >> i think it was inappropriate, yes, i do. >> it could be worse because it is easter sunday, and to make thes
, an opportunity. he could have found a way to say something. but i think the way that jay carney described it, he is not a public figure. i think they were probably surprised and startled by it but they didn't want to throw any comments around. i think it's highly unusual what he did. i think obviously dana is probably right probably not intentional. you rarely hear messages like this from the pulpit on easter morning. you are urged to do the right thing and stop doing the wrong thing. accusations like this and he never even said who was responsible for these things he was describing are offensive and totally out of step with the role of a minister. i think that jay carney speaking for the president finds himself in this awkward position where the president never wants to comment on any religious leaders. >> we pointed out in the story benedictions at george w. bush's events and presided over services for other presidents as well. episcopal church generation ago establishment at prayer. now it's the american left at prayer. i think that's one of the reasons it and the other main line denomination
for their belief. but when fox news's ed henry confronted jay carney about it, this is what he had to say. >> was he surprised? were you surprised that reverend leon decided to get so political and attack leaders at one point saying they want blacks to be back in the back of the bus? sort of odd for easter. >> i wasn't there. i haven't spoken with the president. this was a sermon at a church here that's been visited by presidents of both parties for many, many years. and i think -- you know, i don't have anything more on it for you. >> charles krauthammer is talking about that issue saying he doesn't believe this is a reflection on president obama. >> it was -- it appeared to have no connection intrinsic with him. i don't think he owes him any allegiance. i think what jay carney said is he has every right to stay away from this. i don't think it implicates him at all. what i found incredibly offensive is the language used is the language that echoed, that ted kennedy used when the nomination of robert bork was announced where he went on this libel against bork where he said he's a racist,
, of john kerry, joe biden and jay carney. talk me through them. because a lot of conflicting messages being sent by some of the top people in the american government. >> reporter: yeah. they sure are. what you're going to hear from -- you're going to hear secretary of state john kerry talking about his views on the tamerlan tsarnaev, and whether or not he was trained overseas or domestically. then you're going to hear vice president biden and how he characterizes the tsarnaev brothers. take a listen. >> a young person who went to russia and chechnya who blew people up in boston. so he didn't stay where he went but learned something where he went and came back with a willingness to kill people. >> why? people say to me, they surely know they can never defeat us. they can never overthrow us. they can never occupy us. so why? why whether it's al qaeda central out of the flatta or two twisted perverted, cowardly knockoff jihadists in boston. why do they do what they do? >> i think what's cowardly, and it was terrorism. but -- >> seems to indicate he doesn't believe they're connected to a large,
of a slain teacher and i'll also speak this hour with the white house press secretary, jay carney. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in the situation room. >>> we begin right now with the latest u.s. intelligence. north korea has likely completed all launch preparations. a u.s. official says the obama administration thinks north korea may test fire mobile ballistic missiles at any time without issuing the standard warning to aviation and shipping in the region. all this follows a chilling new warning from north korea today. this time aimed at all foreigners they say in south korea. they're being urged by the north koreans to take shelter or to evacuate to avoid what the north koreans call all out merciless war. japan has boosted its defenses, deploying patriot air defense missile batteries in and around tokyo. and the top u.s. military commander in the pacific says north korea's actions pose a clear and direct threat to america's national security. he adds that if it comes to a fight, the united states is, quote, ready. we'll have a situation room special report on the north korean crisis right at t
on congress to show as much concern for others who are being harmed. >> jay carney said the president will sign the bill despite calling it a band-aid on a serious wound. you know who else could use a congressional band-aid? cancer patients. but, well, they're out of luck, because among the unlucky americans who will certainly feel the aftermath of congress' indecision, are millions of cancer patients who depend on medicare. medicare providers of community-based cancer care, with more than 80% of patients receive their care, will begin experiencing cuts of extreme proportions." services for those cancer patients are apparently not essential enough to warrant emergency action by lawmakers. and the same goes for many, many others. >> 70,000 children will be kicked out of head start. nothing in this bill deals with them. 4 million fewer meals on wheels for seniors. 600,000 people dropped off wic. nothing there for them. >> our military families that will lose the support because we've got the sequester all on the shoulders of those who believe -- >> gentleman's time has expired. >> slash
to begin to solve the problems in social security. >> white house press secretary jay carney pointed out the call for chain cpi came specifically from republican leaders as a necessary way to lower spending. >>> one estimate found chaining cpi would save $121 billion over ten years. but the proposal has also drawn blowbacks from the president's own party leadership. >> i, myself, believe that whatever we talk about in terms of prolonging life of social security should be considered in its own place. whatever we're doing, it's about extending the life and the strength of social security. it's not about balancing the budget. and so that's some of the concerns that some of our members have. why is this in this bill? >>> the growing shift in attitudes toward the legal ite of gay marriage according to the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. 53% of americans believe same-sex couples should be allowed to marry. up two points from december. but more americans also oppose gay marriage, too. up two percentage points as well. >>> when broken down by party, 73% of democrats and 54% of independe
jay carney says in no way shape or form was the president involved in the couple's 5 year celebration. >> i would say a couple of things. decisions made about cultural travel and academic travel are made by the treasury department and i would refer you to specific cases to the treasury department it has been the case that under this administration we have eased the ability to travel to cuba for those purposes. but the decision that the individual level are made at the treasury department not here. >> responding to some of the congressman's complaints treasury department has responded saying site seeing is allowed during the off hours of an educational visit. jay-z and beyonce fulfilled their educational op gageses by meeting with a theert group and taublging to a group of students at a theater there. more help for struggling home owners whose mortgages are still under water. joining us with more is lauren simonetti. >> help for home owners is coming. fannie mae are offering that relief for under water home mortgag mortgages. ov oov . >>> it is time for your fox news health fix. and a
and jay carney was ready. he said -- right from the president on down, they thought this was great news. >> here at the white house we view that as another example of the progress that has been made and the evolution that has been taking place in this country. >> bill: jay carney saluted jason collins for his courage in coming out. david stern, the head of the nba, again welcomed this news and said he's one of us and we're proud of him. >> i think we're going to get past everything in a good way. it is going to become a nonissue. he's a great -- his family is great. he's a great member of our family. and after the immediate media frenzy because the media can be depended upon for a frenzy, it will be all right so what. we'll help the next athlete who wants to do the same thing. >> bill: i think it will help the next one. >> absolutely. >> bill: this is not the end of the road. i would predict in the next couple of weeks, we're going to see more people say okay, if jason collins could do it and people accept him and respect him, there were a lot of good comments from other members of othe
that the ap, associated press, their tweets were hacked. so now even jay carney came out in the white house briefing says the president was fine. i was just with him. ap came out that their account was indeed hacked. we saw dramatic moves within the market. we saw the dow move into negative territory. it is pretty unbelievable. frankly a, the president is fine and b the markets are back to where they were. back to you. melissa: nicole, thanks. lori: bmo cap ha capital lowered its 2013 price target for apple twice in the last week. let chess check in with a senior research analyst at abm markets. to keep an eye what iphones consumers are buying. keith, welcome to you. the crux of your latest forecast, your latest price target downgrade if you will is really based on verizon earnings which showed weaker than expected only 50%. the iphone sales were of the iphone 5, high-end, best margins, if you will, very attractive margins so you say expect disappointment today? >> we think so. we have as you mentioned two cuts. the first, actually had a chance to go out and visit with a number of carriers
the bob dylan of rap music ♪ >> white house spokesperson jay carney was asked about the line in the song where jay-z suggests he got permission from president obama himself. carney denied it and managed to sneak in a swipe at the rapper's rhyming skills. >> i guess nothing rhymes with treasury. because treasury offers and gives licenses for travel as you know and the white house has nothing to do with it. >> jay carney apparently having learned no lessons from the biggy debacle. the hash tag you're it. jay carney says nothing rhymes with treasury. that sounds like a twitter challenge to me. show us your rhyming skills. let's see, using beyonce's nickname bee how about got cleared from treasury we can travel at your leisure bee. >>> no plot twist is safe anymore. forget your blabber mouth friends. stars of the actual shows are ruining it now. kevin bacon had to apologize to fans of his show with the following for retweeting a post that spoiled a critical story line before many fans had a chance to catch up. here's six seconds of kevin bacon saying, sorry, in a clip he posted on vine. >> m
. julie pace who picks off the briefings usually -- jay carney always calls on associated presser, julie wanted to reassure everybody that there was a problem. >> i just want to say at the top that it appears that ap twitter account has been hacked so anything that has just been sent out at about the house with is false. >> good, i appreciate that and i can say that the president is fine, i was just with him. >> bill: he briefing actually started a half hour late because jay carney had been with the president in the oval office. >> there have been several twitter hacks in recent weeks. >> bill: yeah, and the first lady's id was even stolen. and anthony weaner's twitter account was even hacked. >> bill: oh, yeah at least he claims it was. >> nobody on twitter anyway believed it when it happened. everybody suspected that they had been hawked because if something like that happens you have cameras on the white house all the time so if there would have been explosions we would have known about it. >> bill: and you have reporters at the white house all the time. no
had to approve, this the treasury department, according to jay carney, had to approve it. it's so hard to believe a megastar couple, whose names are so well known, so close to the administration, so close during the campaign, raised the headlines, raised the cash, partied with the president, sang at the inauguration, at all the bashes. it's hard to believe their names didn't raise any flags through the white house or the treasury department when they were going through the process of getting access to go to cuba. so kind of hard to think they were they would kind of slide by. >> greta: what's so interesting, according to politico, the treasury told politico that they were the ones who had authorized to provide the clearance, but that they had no idea it would be this couple that would be attending. apparently they gave clearance to the group they're with. >> right. >> greta: they don't look who they're giving clearance to go? i mean, isn't that part of the job of giving clearance, checking people out? >> right. and beyonce carter such a common name, we know, greta. there are so many be
. >> now the other thing is that jay carney just said at the white house we're not seeing a real mobilization. as you say, he is appealing, he's speaking to a domestic audience, kim jeong on jong is. he's not moving the troops yet. we're not seeing a mobilization. one thing that was reported today of concern, potential concern is that we picked up no radiation when we did the air monitoring after the february nuclear underground nuclear test. which led some to suspect that now he has uranium model for a weapon. not just the plutonium. which we knew he was, he was using and working through his stockpile. how much of a concern is it, if he now is also developing a uranium-based fuel model for a nuclear weapon? >> sure. good questions all. one thing i learned while in the administration is to always defer to jay carney and not comment on intelligence matters. to be sure the administration and all relevant agencies are looking at all the information we have and taking every data point seriously. the starting point on the written agreements that we have and exercises like the ones goi

love cubans ♪ communist talk is so confus g confusing ♪ >> so we just heard from jay carney at the white house. he said, no, he hasn't talked to the president. and the president hasn't talked to him about his cuba trip but u.s. officials do say it was sanctioned. what do you know? any back story about jay-z or beyonce on this trip? >> it's interesting. look, when this happened we put some posts up on our website and so did a lot of other people asking, you know, what exactly are they doing there? the pictures that came out were all pictures of them sightseeing. and you can't go to cuba for purely tourism. >> right. >> you're not allowed to do it. so it raised questions. we called lots and lots of people including jay-z and beyonce. they were mum. they wouldn't say whether they got a cultural exchange license or whatever. everybody was not talking about it. when this song came out early this morning, we were on the phone immediately. i will tell you this, suzanne, we called -- we called ten offices of either senators or congressmen within ten minutes or so of the time that th
that. jay carney, the white house press secretary was asked about this during a briefing a short time ago. and he wouldn't rule out that there was a connection. i think the reason a lot of people are asking is the bombings happened about 3:00 p.m. on monday, these letters were received on tuesday. so if you had to speculate, you would think that perhaps they were sent before the bombing. that's certainly a possibility. now, we don't know exactly when they were sent. so we're still trying to nail down some of the details on that, but if this is not connected to the bombings that happened on monday, then it's possibly a very huge coincidence, wolf. that's why questions are being raised about the timing of this. >> the president and first lady we're now told, brianna, will be coming here to boston tomorrow for this 11:00 a.m. eastern interfaith memorial service that will take place. they will honor those who killed the three individuals -- the three individuals who were killed as well as the nearly 200 who were injured, the president going ahead with plans to come to boston. that was ann
, bret. jay carney ruled out the alleged marathon bomber would be designated enemy combatant even though lindsey graham and others say the designation would have allowed authorities to mine intelligence for 30 days and question the suspect about possible links to terrorist groups actively trying to harm the united states. >> the ability to have access to this suspect without a lawyer present, to gather intelligence about a future attack is absolutely essential to our national security. >> critics say the president can't do that because tsarnaev doesn't fit the legal definition of enemy combatant. there is no proof yet that he is an active member of al qaeda or the taliban. >> possibly you might be able to benefit from the time. you may not. he may clam up. it's just as likely if not more likely that you would harm or potentially harm the federal case. >> the white house decision sets a pattern, since march 2009 the obama administration changed the way the war is prosecuted. ordering the pentagon who stop using the term global war on terror. instead calling it an overseas contingency oper
in this case. and then jay carney was asked about the vice president's comments about these suspects being knockoff jihadies at the briefing earlier. here's what jay carney had to say. >> there is an investigation under way. we know something. there is a lot more to learn. that's why the investigation is taking place. >> so, erin, the white house proceeding with extreme caution. obviously for political reasons in this investigation. but that's not always extending to every member of this administration. erin? >> certainly what jay carney saying very different from what secretary kerry said. thank you so much to jim acosta. the investigation is a global investigation. and it also is happening in the russian republic of dagistan where the suspect's parents live. today fbi officials arrived in dagistan to talk to them. what do we know about the conversations between investigators and the parents and again i put in the caveat, you know, earlier the mother tried to say her sons were framed. people have questioned the father's influence on the sons. what were investigators talking to them about?
? >> well we work with our allies -- >> that was white house press secretary jay carney, insisting that the administration will wait for credible and corroborative evidence regarding the use of chemical weapons in sirria it's friday april 26th and this is "now." confirming months of speculation and raising serious foreign policy concerns, the white house announced chemical weapons had been used by the sir yab government in a letter sent to members of congress, the administration said u.s. intelligence agencies now believe with quote varying degrees of confidence, that the syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale. just last month president obama made clear that chemical weapons would be a game-changer. >> i've made it clear to bashar al assad and all who follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching, we will hold you accountable. >> given the fact that the administration has made the use of chemical weapons a theoretical red line not to be crossed. ye
hours since the news broke. press secretary jay carney said the administration is moving forward, cautiously. >> we are continuing to work to build on the assessments made by the intelligence community. that the degrees of confidence here are varying. this is not an airtight case. and that is entirely the responsible thing to do. as i think many observers of this with a little historical perspective have made clear in the last 24 hours. >> nbc news white house correspondent kristin welker joins us live. we know that syria is part of the agenda. >> syria will be part of the agenda. as many as 500,000 syrian refugees currently live in jordan. it is expected that that number will double by the end of the year. this is something of grave concern to jordan as well. i can tell you that reporters will have a few moments at the start of that meeting with the president and king abdullah. we are hoping to get some reaction from president obama about these developments that are coming out of syria. no word yet if he will actually give any reaction. but the white house right now, really weig
that. i asked jay carney about it. here is how he responded. >> he believes and fully recognizes that the challenges women -- or fully recognizes the challenge women continue to face in the work place and that they should not be judged based on appearance. i made clear he apologized for creating this distraction and believes very strongly that attorney general harris is an excellent attorney general and that she's done great work abis dedicated and tough and brilliant. >> reporter: now, president obama apologized to harris, jake, last night after he returned to the white house because the comments were said at a bay area fundraiser. and i will tell you the president frequently does comment on people being good looking but if you go back and look at his comments it is normally men that he says that to. he's kind of saying it in jest. this isn't something we think he said before to a woman and it created a whole lot of attention and discussion. >> here to talk about this all our round table. and ron foreignier who is a genius and also the sexiest man alive. >> you're going to have
fixing the problem at hand. >> well, here's what jay carney had to say about that. >> congress has to act. now, if congress wants to address specifically the problems caused by the sequester with the faa, we would be open to looking at that, but that would be a band-aid measure. >> so are we going to see, patrick, maybe some sort of band-aid measure? it looks like at least they are willing to discuss it at the white house. >> i do think you'll see a bit of a band-aid measure, not as you saw in that clip from jay carney, not what the white house would prefer. we have to remember that the whole idea of the sequester was put in motion with the idea of being that these cuts would be so drastic and so draconian that nobody would possibly accept them, and yet here we are accepting them, so the idea that programs what we're seeing now with the faa is going to spark a renewed interest in congress to work on devastating reduction or perhaps to increase revenue depending on what side you're on, i mean, if there wasn't a motivation to stop the jester in the first place, it's hard to see the motivati
